Thursday Art Date: Light and Dark


Hi Everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome to Thursday's Art Date, today our theme is Light and Dark. I decided to go with a good and evil spin for this week's theme. I love the Jeckyll and Hyde story, and the Looney Tunes did it several times. This is a scene from "Hyde and Hare" where Bugs is adopted by a lonely old man who happens to be Dr. Jeckyll! Here is the video link, I can't find where to embed it on Daily Motion!


I finished my aging face coloured pencil drawing. This was a nice class, I learned a lot about colour theory and layering!


Alex and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary last week! We had a Smoked Cheddar Fondue with Homemade Bread. And we opened up a bottle of bubbly that we've had since 2013! We were celebrating buying our home too.

That's all for now folks! But please check out the link widget below to see more Light and Dark artwork! 

********************

Typical Mid-March weather here in the Laurentian Mountains...more snow! We always get a huge snowstorm around St-Patrick's Day and this year didn't disappoint!

March 26th: Next Thursday's theme is In Like a Lamb, Out Like a Lion. Click on the link for ideas and inspiration! Remember it's all about creating. You can showcase your paintings, drawings, photography, sculpting, baking, poetry...whatever you like! ๐ŸŽจ

That aging face is great! His eyes show wisdom and maybe a bit of sadness. Wonderful!

Love the face. It turned out great. I'm also delighted to see I'm not the only one who loves fondue. Happy anniversary, too.

That is one spectacular snow storm, and a very, very happy (albeit belated) anniversary to you both. Here's to many more.

Rain,

I don't have any artwork to share today but I did put up a post with a link back to your site. I did find inspiration in your theme to put something together with the hopes uplift folks during these dark times, reminding each that we'll once again see the light. Stay healthy, my friend. Enjoy your celebration with Alex. Congratulations on your 7th anniversary and a new home purchase. :) Be happy and blessed always! xx

Wow ~ your drawing turned out great! I forgot about the Looney Tunes Jeckyll and Hyde episodes, wonderful classics. I'll have to share that with my daughter today. You know how to celebrate! that fondue and champagne look amazing. Congratulations ~ Stay warm & well!

RO said...

You know I love my trivia, and you've shared something I had no clue about when it comes to Looney Tunes and Jekyll and Hyde. Your picture jumped out and grabbed my attention right away, and made me think about lightness and darkness. Glad you enjoyed your class so much and that you learned a few new things, and your work looks fabulous. We'll end this with my favorite thing - cheese!!!!(lol) Hugs and lots more hugs. By the way, it's March here in NC it will be near 80 degrees!!!! Ugh..(lol)

Pam said...

WOW....still so much SNOW. I saw some flakes this winter. Actually we had two all day snow days but the ground was too warm and it would melt as fast as it hit the ground. Loving the drawings. I have been unable to talk with you much to see how the classes are going. You are really opening up your hidden talent. Great job.

Andrea @ From The Sol said...

Congratulations for 7 wonderful years and I wish you many more to come. I loved the bugs and Hyde especially Bug's version of Hyde at the end. I don't remember seeing that cartoon, though I am certain I was around when it was produced. The look of concern or sadness on your wonderful face drawing is indicative of the times ... there is certainly reason for both feelings. I am staying inside as much as I can. Our country is being ravaged with the corona virus and at my age I have much to be concerned about. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Be safe, Rain ...

Happy anniversary! We are up to 18 in the summer!

The Happy Whisk said...

Love your art. What a great drawing. You're super talented. Snow, we had some the other day but it was way small and then we got rain, rain, rain. But ... it's Spring and that's my jam. Happy Spring. Happy Moving.

sandy said...

Love your cartoon - so so cute. And the face you did so well, YOu are kind of inspiing me to pick up the colored pencils again. Sounds like a good anniversary and you must be so excited about your new house.

Sandi said...

The face is amazing!
The fondue looks amazing.
The snow is amazing. We have about the same amount here-- of pollen!

Your Bugs painting made a song pop into my head. Remember when Bugs is singing like, "La la la la...Abra ca pocus! Lal la la" and there is a bad guy trying to get him who keeps turning into random things instead? Ha ha

Thanks...sigh...your post was a breath of fresh air. I have been reading far too much coronanews all day. Are you guys staying home?

Gillena Cox said...

Ah yes the face has more character this week. Thanks for this weeks prompt

Be safe and healthy

much love...

wyomingheart said...

What a great face, Rain! Congrats to you both on that anniversary! What do you have in the works for the new property? I’m so very excited for you all! Hope your weather breaks soon.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Belated anniversary wishes to you and Alex, Rain. Glad you and the pets are both doing well. Celebrations are so important these days when people’s spirits are lagging and yours looked wonderful, especially that bubbly. Kudos on finishing the face. It’s been great watching it come together. Stay well and happy, blogger friend. There is much to be happy about.

Cockeyed Jo said...

Stopped in fr my art fix. Love the character in the face. Good job! It tells a story. Happy anniversary!

Becki said...

That is a terrific aging face, Rain. And Happy Anniversary! :)

Rain, the pencil drawing of the man is amazing. Well done indeed. Ohhh I wish Mr. M liked fondue. That looks so darn good. We are having extraordinary good weather here.

Love to see your art and snowy realm. It snowed here this morning. Looks like the sun is arriving now.

Lovely day to you!
